Yao On Trial at West Ham
Saturday, 24th Jul 2010 17:41
Former Town midfielder Devann Yao is on trial with West Ham and scored a goal as a Hammers XI lost 4-2 to League Two Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium this afternoon. The American was released by Town at the end of the season.
The 20-year-old wideman netted his goal just before half-time, curling the ball into the net from 16 yards.
The New Yorker, who was previously with Metz, Pisa, Livorno and St Mirren, spent a long spell on trial with the Blues late last year, winning himself a contract until the end of the season. However, the Yao failed to impress in Town’s reserves and was let go in May without making a senior appearance.

How Much Do We Need to Rip Up to Start Again? by Steve_M
That small amount of promise and hopefulness at the start of the year has been well and truly dashed and this looks like it’s going to be one of those frustrating seasons; one where Ipswich is competitive enough against all but the best sides in the division but just not good enough on a consistent basis to ever build the momentum necessary for a sustained promotion challenge.
